"Very nice and lovingly furnished holiday home not far from St. Ives city (within walking distance of 15min.)
Very good standard and good care by the Carbis Bay Holidays team - thank you and we will be back :-)
"We had a great stay at Corva Farmhouse, amazing property full of great equipment in a lovely location. Would definitely recommend as accommodation was brilliant, Carbis bay holidays were very helpful and St Ives is beautiful x"
"We had a lovely stay at Corva Farmhouse. The accommodation was first class. Plenty of space for everyone and everything was of a very high quality. There was nothing that hadn't been thought of. It was also lovely opening your curtains in the morning to see horses outside!
Bit of a walk into town along a very narrow lane. Uphill coming back but that's Cornwall! We used the bus up to the Trenwith car park a couple of times - they were very accommodating and would drop you off at the end of Belyars Lane which saved a bit of the walk. Worth the £1 fare.
Lovely holiday - thank you.

"This is a lovely farmhouse with plenty of space and beautifully and practically furnished. Drive carefully down the lane because you cannot avoid the large potholes. You have two other dwellings close by on one side but views around the property to the front and left side are pleasant, mainly of fields and horses with Knill’s monument atop one of the hills. If you climb up the hillock in the garden you can see Godrevy lighthouse.The garden is simple and appealing. The centre of St Ives is a short drive away unless you are a very keen walker. Every space outside and inside has been thought through for visitors providing everything you need and includes a music system, den and binoculars along with three televisions, none in the bedrooms which is a good touch.
So often, properties don’t quite live up to the photos and description online. This one does and the courteous letting agents were on hand to resolve any minor problems."
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your gorgeous farmhouse. We have had a wonderful week and don't want to go home! The farmhouse has been perfect for us - comfortable, lots of space and so warm and cosy even the gale force winds and sleet and hail showers.
We hope to be back to stay again.
Karen, Paul, Charlotte, Amelia, Tom, Grandma & Grandad Harding. Auntie Lisa and Freya Humphries and the dog!
